Stretch a pound of hamburger into Mexican Pizza

20130308-075616.jpg

Feeding my always hungry son can be a challenge. This recipe was easy to put together I made 5 pizzas and I even ended up with leftovers! One skillet and a cookie sheet is all I needed to get dinner on the table.
The recipe called for Trader Joe brand ingredients but I chose to use the Aldi comparable that were in my pantry. I also used a full pound of hamburger instead of the half pound the recipe called for. One other substitution was my cookie sheet to bake three pizzas at one time instead of a pie tin for each one.
I was totally out of fresh tomatoes and green opinion, so my pizzas had to survive with only black olives and some sour cream for garnish.
Tips was simple and effective. Give it a try

  1. Hmmm, These look good. If I make up a bunch they would be a good after school snack. How do you think they would freeze?

  2. The tortillas get crispy around the edges when you make them. It might work if you stuff them with the meat/ beans freeze then uncooked and then play with the bake times if you are cooking from frozen. If you try it let me know how it works out!
